Hey guys! Today on the blog I decided I was going to talk about how I managed to achieve an increase of OVER 100K MONTHLY VIEWS in ONLY TWO MONTHS! I know there are a lot of posts similar to this one; however, I did this by spending literally NO MONEY! That’s right! Zero. Zilch. Nada.
Blogs cost a lot and growing a following involves a lot of time, effort, and MONEY. I knew I didn’t want to spend anything to promote my pins so I tried my best to get organic viewers and to get them to add up quickly! Keeping this in mind, I figured I should help anyone else who feels like it’s impossible.
3 Easy Ways to Get 100K Monthly Viewers on Pinterest
Before I Started:
I started Month 1 with only around 25-50 followers on Pinterest. This was when I had just created a Pinterest account for my blog and I knew I wanted to try and grow it quickly, but I didn’t know how! After reading MANY posts about rich pins, paying to promote your pins, and Tailwind (which I’ll talk more about later) I knew what I should do.
As I was figuring out my plan, I decided I was only going to use free methods to grow Pinterest monthly views so this is the plan of action that I took! To start, I am in a few Facebook groups that helped me get added into three group Pinterest boards but I have only posted in them a few times so that’s not the main way I gained views. They’re nice to be in though!
How to Gain Monthly Viewers Quickly:
1. Join Tailwind (ONLY the free trial).
This was the best thing ever because within the first month I started my Pinterest account I was working part-time, finishing up my spring semester of college classes, and then starting my summer A term courses. You can schedule pins and it will post them to your designated Pinterest boards by itself!
The free trial gives you 100 free scheduled Pins and the site also lays out when your busiest traffic times are. This was great because some of mine were at 10pm or 3am! That’s why this was an awesome tool for me. I gained all these views only using around 70 pins with Tailwind.
My growth has started to slow, so that could be because I haven’t been using Tailwind anymore, but I haven’t had as much time lately to pin things. I don’t know for sure what the cause is! My suggestion is that if you end up loving Tailwind and you do want to upgrade, then it’s $14.99/month. If that’s in your budget then go for it!
2. Re-pin at least 5-10 photos from your main feed every day.
These are the posts that you see from everyone in your network! It’s a great way to engage with other bloggers/friends and to find people who share your tastes and interests.
Re-pinning their items will get you on their radar AND they might end up re-pinning your posts too! Then there’s a free flow of pins between y’all and you can both help each other gain some monthly viewers.
3. In the Search box, go through the “Trending Ideas” section.
This is the best tip that I have. It allows you to re-post the current trending pins across Pinterest and allows viewers to see your posts on the trending page as well! Now you don’t have to save from ALL of the boards. I’ve seen some weird trending pins and I also don’t have a board for tattoos either. Choose 2-3 topics out of them and save from those!
My largest suggestion for this one is to make sure to save 3-5 pins from each trending section per day. I usually do it once in the morning and once in the afternoon/evening. When starting out, maybe try to do it during your lunch break as well! The more pins, the better visibility.
Month 1 & Month 2 Breakdown:
As you can see my growth totally spiked once I hit June. It was crazy and I could see it doubling every day! These three tips will 100% allow your Pinterest to grow which can definitely help when, and if, you decide you want to work with brands! The best part of it all is you won’t be spending any money either!
I also wanted to add in here that I know a lot of times these posts are from seasoned experts on various websites or for various topics. Before this, I had no experience in growing on Pinterest before this and knew I wanted to fo my best to help other bloggers who are new and trying to gain more exposure!
